OC, if folks are staying after the rally, I'm sure some of the 100 FHU sites will have opened up. Might mean moving to one if you hadn't already been in one of them.

Ours will be open as we will be leaving as soon as the rally is over as we're headed to Moline and parts beyond.

Actually, what I've been saying is that there are well over 100 FHU sites. The first 100 to register are guaranteed a full hookup with electric, water and sewer.

There are more FHUs that that, but they aren't guaranteed in registration order. Some will be used for handicap sites, others for parking committee that we're asking to arrive early and who will be there for almost a week before the "honey wagon" service (although most of those folks are also in the first 100); some are on short sites that won't accommodate a large motor home or fifth wheel and will be used for r-Pod Village; others that will be somewhat "luck of the draw."

Sounds great Bob as long as you put the forked tongue from Iowa next to the muck pile so all the others don't catch the disease. I had my vet give me an anti-forked tongue booster shot this morning, but she warned me to stay at least 100 ft away from him or wear a gasmask and earplugs. BTW, the $200 offer is still valid.

The podders are quite a close group. We've been having our own rallies for years. A bunch of us wanted to go to Goshen and wanted to stay together. (Also an r-pod can get dwarfed next to a bunch of bigger rigs.) Bob was very nice to accommodate our request to be placed together. We even have former podders who have moved up to bigger rigs and have requested to be parked near our "village".

Podders are quite used to people walking by and saying "Oh, how cute! Do you mind if I take a look inside?" We are always prepared for "pod tours". At our rallies one of our favorite things is to check out each others' pods to see what changes everyone has made to the decor, so don't be shy about asking if you're curious.

Thanks Peggy!! I hadn't had the nerve to ask folks the etiquette for wanting to see inside someone's rig! I would definitely love to see!!

I love how you say the podders are a close group! Us over on the phat Phrog thread are the same way....we weren't smart enough to ask Bob to put us PPST folks together.....but then again....nah....what was I thinking! Ha!

Heck, some of us had to get a special dispensation just to get out of kindergarten and I know one from Iowa that was ban from the school system after 2 days in 1st grade. None have won any medals in the "smart" department.

I hear the bidding is still on to have Turbs under the muck pile! It may even get on to eBay!
